Bethenny Frankel may leave Housewives for her own show

The Real Housewives of New York City star and former Apprentice star Bethenny Frankel may leave the Bravo show for her own series.

The show would be called Skinny & The City–Bethenny’s line of products is called Skinnygirl–and The New York Post’s Page Six quoted an anonymous “tipster” who said, “The show will follow her planning her wedding to [fiancé] Jason Hoppy.”

An anonymous person confirmed that to the New York Daily News, saying, “Why wouldn’t she want her own show? Who would stay on a stage with five or six other ladies when she can have her very own platform?” The paper also quoted nutritionist Tanya Zuckerbrot, who owns SkinnyAndTheCity.com, and is upset the new series might use the same name, even though there’s been no confirmation that’s actually the real name.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
